      NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) State police officers and dogs are searching the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as they investigate the killing of a semi-pro football player whose body was found nearby.

      Saturday's search of Hernandez's sprawling home in North Attleboro involved several officers.

      Police have previously searched in and around the home as they try to figure out who killed Odin Lloyd, whose body was found about a mile from Hernandez's home.

      Lloyd's family says the two men were friends and together the night he died. Authorities have ruled Lloyd's death a homicide.

      A spokeswoman for the Bristol District Attorney's office declined to comment on the investigation Saturday.

      An attorney for Hernandez has said he would not comment on the searches.
